Partners in Lifelong Learning and Readiness

The Colorado State Patrol has developed the PILLAR program, an age specific curriculum targeting personal well-being and informed decision making as well as traffic safety. By structuring the PILLAR Program to begin in early-childhood, they look to positively impact the future of Colorado’s youth when faced with the choices they will make regarding traffic and personal safety. By bringing the PILLAR Program into your school, the CSP hopes to reduce preventable injury and fatal crashes throughout the state.
